Hello. Are you good to eat? >=)

Haha. Anyways, lovely fanart; the second one is cool (and all that work on the background = <3. I really like how it adds to the picture.)

C&C ahoy!
Oooh. I like your work - it's very close to the series style, and you have a nice sense of style. But there's quite a bit to crit. - but if you don't want to hear it, don't bother to read. But if you do...

That bright tacky purple on the background of "Wheels of Fate," really detracts from all that work you've put into the wheels though. I'm being a busybody, and I hope I haven't caused offense, but I did some quick editing of the pic just to show you what the picture would look like with a quieter, less saturated shade behind it. And some shadowing. Here. I'm so sorry if I'm being meddlesome, but it's such a lovely piece otherwise, and that purple really wasn't doing anything for it. We want the focus to be on Ed right? So let's put all the lines and saturated colours on him.

The face is a little off - the angle of his features and the edge of his face doesn't quite match. Deepening the tones a little more, particularly on Ed's coat would give the piece a bit more solidity too. And his body cries out to have some highlights added. Speaking of them, it's very difficult to tell where your light source is coming from - and the wheels and Ed's light sources seem different.

I like the way you've done the folds of Ed's cloak - there's a nice sense of motion and weight- but if they're being blow by the wind, it doesn't agree with the motion of his hair.

I also quite like all the work you've put into the wheels - they look quite good looking.

Re: C&C ahoy!
*bows* Thank you for the crit - and I'm someone who believes in constructive critisism, so I'm not offended - you can't improve without people pointing out your mistakes, ne? ^___^

I agree with the purple... I was originally going to put black behind the piccu. But then I don't know what happened and the black became purple. D: Heh, you know, I'm one of those lazy people who don't plan what they draw or CG and just randomly put lines and colour on paper, so I never actually consider where the light source is and where the wind is coming from etc. XD;; It's a bad habit that I must get rid of, lol.

I will probably edit the piccu if I find some time... :3
